  • We had a great time and learned a lot on our tour. James is a great guide, very knowledgeable and a great photographer. It is definitely a little chilly up there so dress warm. We highly recommend this tour and have memories that will last a lifetime.

  • James was very professional and knowledgeable. He has all the equipment to take wonderful pictures. The meeting point was a little confusing as the pin he sent us took us to the middle of the road. I am glad we went early to check out the place and texted him. He resent the pin and everything turned out good. Perhaps some directions or description of the meeting point will help. This is our first time there and it was really dark. The photos were amazing, although James had to touch up one of our photos. We were hoping to hear more stories about the different stars. Oh.... It is really cold, standing out there for 1.5 hours.
